On Thursday, Jussie Smollett was found guilty on 5 of the 6 felony charges.
You’d think after getting on the stand and telling the jury your story, and that jury then flatly rejecting it, that you’d have an ounce of self-awareness and you’d accept the verdict, and either apologize or slither off and say nothing.
But that’s not who attention maniac Jussie Smollett is…so he’s now off on a whole ‘nother tangent, this time claiming he will win on appeal.
Daily Wire reported that actor Jussie Smollett, now a convicted felon, is reportedly completely confident that an appeals court will overturn five felony convictions stemming from a hate crime hoax that he staged on himself back in 2019.
Smollett was found guilty on Thursday of five Class 4 felonies for telling police officers and detectives a myriad of lies from the staged hoax that he tried to blame on purported Trump supporters.
Speaking with reporters following the verdict, Nenye Uche, lead attorney for Smollett, said that the now-convicted felon was “100 percent confident” that he would be found innocent on appeal.
“We feel 100 percent confident that this case will be won on appeal,” Uche said. “Unfortunately, that’s not the route we wanted but sometimes that’s the route you have to take to win, especially a case where we remain 100 percent confident in our client’s innocence.”
“He’s a human being; he’s disappointed — but I will tell you this: I am very proud of him. I’m very, very proud of him,” he added. “He’s holding up very strong; he’s committed to clearing his name and he’s 100 percent confident that he’s going to get cleared by the appellate court.”
This man is the epitome of a narcissist. He simply can’t admit that he did anything wrong and take responsibility for what he did.
And once again, he’s doing all he can to keep this goofy circus going, to keep his name in the spotlight.
Because nothing is worse for Jussie than to be forgotten about.
